with harry potter & the deathly hallows part 2 opening in just a week and some change (squeal!), college fashion put together a beauty post inspired by the 4 different hogwarts houses.





and a couple from the characters:

hermione granger

luna lovegood

bellatrix lestrange

for explanations of how to effectively capture “the look”, check out their post.  they’ve also done some harry potter-inspired fashion posts before:





this will help me think of what to wear when i go to that harry potter tribute art exhibition (yes, i’m going!  i don’t care!).  i won’t be wearing a costume although it will probably be relatively easy for me to pass as cho chang.  especially since i like blue, ravenclaw, and those shoes in the formal look are a knock-off of the christian louboutin canon 140’s i’ve been lusting after.

i think i would’ve liked to be in ravenclaw out of all the houses even though our heroes are all in gryffindor.  my favorite characters were sirius black (gryffindor) and severus snape (slytherin).  i can’t wait until i’m done with all this bschool nonsense so i can get down to what really matters–reading harry potter again.
